Are you waiting for reimbursement of healthcare and medication costs?
Many staff members submit their applications for reimbursement of healthcare and medication costs at this time of year. For this reason, the processing time is longer than usual. We hope for your understanding on this matter. The HR Division is focused on granting your reimbursement as soon as possible.
